Drysure Extreme Boot Dryers
Hiking boots, work boots, snow boots … no matter what kind of boot you wear, Drysure Extreme will handle all drying duties.

In the tent, at the cabin, or even in the car, insert the Drysure Extreme units into your boots and they begin grabbing and holding the moisture. Because they use no heat, they extend the life of boots by many times. Easy, effective, and reusable to dry boots hundreds of times.

Chimney of Insanity Charcoal Starter
They call it the “BBQ Dragon.” It delivers the heat to quickly light any kind of charcoal. The innovative design can have the coals ready to go in as little as three minutes! By adding a 90-degree elbow to the side of the chimney, it creates a turbo effect, drawing more air into the coals and lighting them faster and more evenly. It’s made from heavy gauge steel with a thick heat shield to protect your hand on the nylon handle. The BBQ Dragon assures optimum performance.

COAST Polysteel 600R Flashlight
The Coast Polysteel 600R is the flashlight you want in your corner when SHTF. It’s quite honestly the toughest flashlight we’ve ever tested. It has a stainless steel core we’ve thrown against rocks and over cliffs, because … because we could. It kicks out 530 lumens on high and has a beam distance of 810 feet. The most impressive feature, however, is it runs on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack or alkaline batteries. Oh, it’s also waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about that either.
The COAST Polysteel 600R is as rugged as any hardcore on your list! Check them out!
Craft beer enthusiasts listen up: the ManCan is one of the coolest things you can add to your arsenal of crafty contraptions. Not only is simply more fun to drink beer from a tap, but it also guarantees the freshness that your refined palate deserves. Trust us, serving up a pint at the campsite that tastes exactly as it does at the brewery is a glorious thing indeed. The single-walled, stainless steel growler means it stays ice cold in the cooler until you’re ready to imbibe. If you want to give everyone gift envy pick up the ManCan Picnic Keg and Tap and stick it under the tree for someone this Christmas.
Combines technology and beer drinking … what’s better? Check it out!
Braven Flye Power Headphones
Braven makes some of the best waterproof Bluetooth speakers on the market, and we have to say that their bluetooth earbuds are following suit. First off, they’re waterproof, which means you can train in any weather conditions you desire. Second, they have LED lights built-in, so the cars behind you can see you from a distance. And third, if you want that extra level of alertness you can select “ambient audio awareness” to get a nice mix of the sounds around you. Top that off with custom EQ settings and you have a great setup to please any music lover on the go.
From their commute to their trail run – keep them jamming!

It’s the equivalent of bringing a reclining porch swing to the campsite, and the comfort just can’t be beaten.

They are built with reinforced corners, stainless steel hinges, and robust lining to perform in the most extreme conditions. There’s a soft-touch digital display, but you can also control the cooling temperature via a wifi app on your smartphone.
